In general, recreational fishing is a high‐participation activity with huge economic value and social benefits across the world. In Europe, there are many methods involved including both active (e.g. spear, hand‐gathering and rod and line) and passive (e.g. pots, set‐lines, nets, and traps) ways.
Also called as Sporting fishing, it is done for pleasure or competition. In an attempt to reinvent the sports fishing sector, Fishtripr, a Belgian startup has secured a €500,000 fundraising campaign.
